What steps are youth organisations taking to mitigate the COVID-19 Crisis?


WEBINAR: Youth and COVID-19: Response, Resilience and Recovery

7 May 2020 – 10h45-12h30 CEST


The event will discuss the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth in the MENA region, how the current crisis has shaped their trust in government, how initiatives of youth-led organisations and intergenerational solidarity help mitigate the immediate impact of the crisis and how youth can participate in national recovery plans and build more resilient societies and economies in the long-run.


This webinar, organised by the MENA-OECD Governance Programme will discuss the key findings from the OECD survey on the response of youth organisations to the pandemic, building on the replies of 90+ youth organisations from 40+ countries worldwide. It will invite policy makers, young people and international partners to exchange good practices and experiences from their countries in creating a more youth-responsive public governance for a fair and inclusive recovery that leaves no one behind.
